Hey guys, I am thinking about building an amp from scratch (I'm an electronics tech by trade). I have a Splawn Quickrod that kills but it's a 100 watts! I could build a nice 70's/80's rock preamp like the Splawn, Rockstah, or similar but would like to have something with lower power (10-30 watts). My concern is having an amp that sounds "small" even on a 4x12 cab. I'm trying to decide between a push/pull EL84 or 6V6 type power section or would a single ended EL34 sound bigger (I could even parallel 2 tubes)? I need that ROAR but below 1000 decibels. I have an Orange TH30 (4xEL84's) that I reworked and it sounds good but doesn't roar like the Splawn. I had a Friedman Pink Taco and didn't like it at all. Not sure if the power sections are the issue for me or not. I do like a lot of the Phaez demos and he does quite a bit of single ended stuff. I have also considered reworking a JTM45 since they are 30 watts but for a dirty amp, 30 watts is a LOT in a bedroom. If you have direct experience playing dirty tones through lower and higher wattage stuff through the same cab, I would love to hear from you!
